BEFORE you apply

First check the International Office website for the general application requirements and funding criteria for internships under the Erasmus+ program. Participants in "diverse" life situations (disability/chronic illnesses, first-time students, working students, students with children) can receive additional erasmus funding.

You have to search for a suitable internship yourself. Tips for a successful search are available on the International Office website.

AFTER successfully applying to the Faculty of Agriculture

Please register online at the International Office.

The Learning Agreement for Traineeships outlines the program arranged with the receiving organization for your internship abroad and the objectives of your internship. Please give yourself sufficient time to complete the form and upload the signed document to Mobility Online at least 4 weeks before the start of the internship. Instructions for completing the form are available on the International Office website.



Some of the degree programs in the Faculty of Agriculture allow internships to be recognized as elective modules. Please contact the module representative about this before your stay abroad. Internships taken outside the regular curriculum can be listed as additional achievements in your transcript or diploma supplement. Please request this at your examination office with your Learning Agreement for Traineeships attached (including Table D).

You can also obtain a Certificate of Intercultural Competence from the International Office. This extra-curricular qualification allows foreign stays (including internships), participation in language courses and courses with an international orientation, support provided to foreign students and involvement in international associations and projects to be recognized with a certificate.
